Some clothes, when you look at them, just scream cuteness. This adorable off-the-shoulder top was one of those pieces. It gives off the sense of innoncence with all of its ruffles so I figured that it was fitting to take them on my front porch and be just your typical girl next door.
This top is has the biggest, fullest ruffles and I can’t even begin to express just how cute it is in person. The best thing about it though is the price! It was only $14.99! I purchased it off Sheinside. Normally I am skeptical of the clothing websites that ship directly from China but I have to say that everything that I have ordered from this company is really good quality, especially for the price. I would, however, recommend ordering one size up because everything tends to run a little small.
To play up the Girl Next Door vibe I tied a pink bandana around my neck. I actually got the idea from a lot of my Instagram friends and I love how cute it looked. My bandana was from the craft section at Wal-Mart and was only $1! They had a lot of colors to choose from but I loved the vibrancy of the pink.
When I saw the pink of the bandana, I immediately thought about one of my favorite handbags from Marc by Marc Jacobs. While this bag is a few years old it still looks great and has definitely help up over the years. I love the color blocking and how the pink and red play off one another to make a really unique color palette.
For my jeans, I went with a great, classic pair of flares. I love that this trend is coming back around again. I love how the flare elongates the leg and I personally think that they are very slimming. They do a good job of balancing everything creating the illusion of a slimmer figure. My shoes are a TJ Maxx find and are probably one of my favorite finds to date. They are Steve Madden and were less than $15!
This was a super fun outfit to wear and I hope you loved it as much as I did! Until next time my sweet friends!

With the stores starting to fill their shelves with pumpkins, pilgrims and leaves (and some of them even Christmas!) and the scent of pumpkin-flavored everything lingering in the air, my heart is starting to yearn for my favorite season… Fall.
While we don’t really get perfect Fall weather in South Georgia, we do get relief from the 90 degree temperatures and a temporary break in the humidity. The leaves fall to the ground, there is a chill in the night air and the days become just a little shorter. The sound of a Marching Band fills in the air on Friday nights as the local football team takes on their opponent and the taste of hot chocolate and hot cider warms our souls. A pot of Mama’s famous White Chicken Chili is bubbling on the stove with warm bread cooling on the counter and everyone seems to be filled with just a little extra love. Clothes are worn in layers while scarves and boots are taken out of storage. Pumpkin Spice is finally back at Starbucks (and everywhere else) and the start of the holiday season is beginning.
To me. the season of Fall is for Family and Friends. The cool nights are spent around bonfires, the meals are heartier and shared with family, and the clothes are worn for comfort and warmth. That is exactly why I love this dress from Modest Maimi. When I look at it I just picture Fall. Every detail… the moss green color, the draping sides, the long-sleeves… it is the epitome of Fall fashion. This particular dress is called the Draping Maxi. It is probably one of my favorite pieces of clothing in my closet. It is beyond comfortable and when I wear it, I can’t help but want to twirl everywhere!
When they get them in stock, they always sell out fast. My advice would be to follow them on Instagram so you can be notified when they are back in stock. Last year, they had them available in quite a few different colors so keep checking their Instagram for updates. It was a bestseller so I know that they re-stock whenever possible!
For this particular look, I paired it with sandals and the cutest necklace from 31 Bits. In the past, though, I have worn it with a pair of booties and an infinity scarf. That gives me a little extra warmth and really changes up the look and feel of the dress. Either way you wear it, it is still an amazing dress and I know that I will continue to wear it for years to come. Make sure you check out Modest Maimi because they have a bunch of cute dresses, even if this one is not currently in stock. Now here is to cooler temps and pumpkin-flavored everything! Hopefully Fall is here sooner rather than later!
I just in case you forgot that I am a Mommy to the cutest little girl, here is a picture to remind you!

One of my favorite places to shop this Summer has been Pink Poodle Fashion. I love their wide variety of clothes and that everything is at a very reasonable price point. The style of the clothes goes perfectly with my personal style so I always know that I will find something I love. I recently received the Jade Top with Fringe and it did not disappoint.
I love the vibrancy of the color and how I can easily pair it with almost any color bottom. The length of the shirt makes it appropriate for pants or leggings and the style will easily transition into the Fall.
I kept my accessories simple with an oversized tote and a fun necklace. I have been loving oversized totes lately because they are big enough for my things and I can easily throw in Vivi’s supplies as well. Sometimes a diaper bag is necessary but for a quick shopping trip or dinner, it is just easier to throw everything in one bag. This particular bag was purchased from Apricot Lane. I love the fun tassel and pom-pom detail. The bag is really sturdy and is easily holds everything I need for Vivi and myself. My necklace was purchased from a boutique while I was on vacation and I love that the beads and the horn pendant are made of wood.
My shoes are just some classic black sandals that I got from Rack Room Shoes. I have also seen the almost exact same pair at Target! Chasing an almost one year old definitely keeps me busy so comfort is really is an important factor when it comes to my shoes. These pair of sandals is really comfortable and always me to stay on my feet with ease. The cut of them also keeps them from rubbing so I don’t get blisters!
I highly encourage you to check out The Pink Poodle Fashion Boutique! I can almost guarantee that you will find something you love!

I love me a good vest…
It truly is the perfect piece to transition through the seasons and, if you get it in the right material, you can literally wear it all year long.
This utility vest is exactly that… a year-long piece…
Our Summer’s are HOT in Savannah. Hot really isn’t even a good word. A better word would be scorching. Add in the humidity and you will understand why our weather is considered the armpit of the South. It is because of this that cool, breathable pieces are a must!
My utility vest is an American Eagle find that I scored at the end of the season last Fall for $20. It is lightweight and adjustable so it has easily adjusted through the seasons. I love how long it is because it adds something extra to my dresses and tunics without giving the illusion of cutting me off in the middle. The best part about this vest… it has pockets! I paired it with a dress from Forever 21 that I got earlier in the Summer. It is a little on the shorter side for my usual taste, but it has been so hot this Summer that I really did not mind. The dress was only $12 and is actually really well made for being so cheap. It is fully lined and it has a gold, back zipper detail.
My bag is a Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac and it is in a beautiful mint color. This picture does not even begin to do it justice. It is such a versatile bag that has easily transitioned with me through all the Seasons. It is actually very roomy very being considered a “mini bag” and I am able to fit everything inside with ease.
My sandals were a birthday gift from my sweet friend Julia of Glitter and Juls. I love the pop of color that they brought to my outfit and I am a sucker for a good boho vibe. I was inspired by the pink in the sandals so I added one of my fave Kendra Scott necklaces to really give my outfit that pop! My sunnies are a few year old but they are Tory Burch.
I am already planning all of the ways that I can wear the vest this Fall! It really is an investment piece and I encourage you all to go out and get you one! Maybe you will get lucky and find one on super sale like I did! If you want some outfit inspo then head over to my Pinterest and give me a follow at Being Mrs. Fowler. I am always pinning outfit ideas for using this vest! Hope you all are having a FAB week!

There is just something about a graphic tank…
Make it a graphic tank about Jesus and that just makes it that much better!
While on vacation this Summer, I saw this tank in a boutique window and had to go in and check it out. The boutique, called Steel Mill, had some of the cutest clothes and the best prices. This tank was less than $25! It is also super soft so getting it was a no-brainer!
My Faith is something that has always been really important to me and with all that is going on in the world today, we could all use a little Jesus! I paired the tank with a pair of super dark denim and the prettiest lace kimono.
For my accessories I went with a basic pair of black sandals and the CUTEST crab bag! I also bought this bag while on vacation. Kate Spade was having the biggest sale so it was practically 75% off!
This is a very casual look but you could easily dress up this tank with a blazer, heels and a cute clutch. It has definitely become a favorite in my wardrobe and I cannot wait to style it different ways!

There is just something about a tunic that will forever be one of my favorite fashion trends. I really shouldn’t even call it a trend because I feel like it is a timeless addition to any wardrobe that will be used for years to come.
This beautiful floral tunic, from one of my favorite boutiques Pink Poodle Fashion, is perfect for the Summer months but I know that it will easily transition into the Fall. It makes Nursing easy and it does a great job of hiding my Mom “fluff.” They only thing that would make this tunic better would be the perfect accessories. Luckily, I have that covered with JORD Wood Watches.
JORD Wood Watches is a company making unique time pieces for both men and women. Each watch is made of wood and metal and many of them are automatic! My watch is from the Cora Collection. Finely grained golden Koa wood and rich rose tones encapsulate the beauty of a summer sunset in this stunning watch. It is such a well-made piece and I love the fact that it is automatic. I will never have to buy a battery!
To complement the look, I added a pair of super-distressed skinnies. I felt like it took my outfit to another level with the girliness of my tunic and soft lines of my watch. I also accented with lots of my favorite rose gold jewlery from Kendra Scott. You can never have too much rose gold or Kendra!

If you are a recent follower to my blog, I can tell you that I have a slight love affair with anything boho. If you have been following for a while, well that is not new information! Needless to say, when I saw a tie-dye tunic, my heart began to swoon!
This tunic is from one of my newest faves, Pink Poodle Fashion. This online boutique has some of the cutest clothes and the best price points. I literally want like everything in the shop! This tunic is super lightweight so it is great for the Summer but I know that it will easily transition into the Fall!
I paired the tunic with white, high-waisted shorts from Charlotte Russe. I have very long legs and I loved that these shorts were short without being too short. The Mom in me just can’t pull off the booty shorts! Not to mention I am always scared I am going to run into a student when I am out and about! For my shoes, I went with classic, black gladiators. This particular pair was a steal at Forever 21 for less than $20!
I didn’t go too crazy with my accessories. My necklace is from Earthbound Trading Company. If you are a boho-lovin’ lady like me, I strongly encourage you to go check out their jewelry selection. Some of my favorite necklaces have been purchased from here and they are always having a sale. Even if their jewelry is not on sale, it is always reasonably priced and there is always a clearance selection. Most of the time, the clearance jewelry is on sale for BOGO! This particular necklace was on clearance and I only paid around $7. My handbag is a Target find and I really need to use it more! I always forget that I have it, which is a shame! It has such great detail and the tassels are totally on point.
So I mentioned that I have a slight obsession with Pink Poodle Fashion. Well get ready because I am about to pass on that obsession to all of you! Head on over to my Instagram @beingmrsfowler to check out a fun giveaway that I am hosting with this adorable boutique! The winner will get to pick any item that they want from the shop for FREE!
